JAMB Speaks Concerning Candidate’s Withheld Result


Following the massive complaint of exam candidate being unable to see their results online, The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said such candidates might have had their results withheld.

This was disclosed in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB)’s Head of Media, Fabian Benjamin, in Abuja on Monday.

Some candidates have earlier cried out following the removal of their released results from the website of the Board, they also reported that they were able to see the same result previously but have failed to see it again on the same web page.

The candidates complained that the site displayed, “You do not have any result yet” or “you did not write the examination,” after such results were earlier published.

According to Mr. Benjamin, the board may reschedule the examinations for some whose cases are exceptional but some results may have been withheld.

“Once you don’t see your result after a while it means it has been withheld.

“However, there are exceptions and the board intends to reschedule the examinations for those who fall in that category but they would be contacted before then,” he also said.

He explained that the board was still working to release other results.

He also said the board would continually give an update to the general public on latest developments as time goes on, especially if there are any changes in the system.

Mr. Franklin advised that those seeking to change their choice of institution should do so before their institution commence the 2018/ 2019 admission process.
